The Hawks will now begin their Emirates FA Cup campaign under lights, as our Preliminary Round tie against Saltdean United has been brought forward to Friday 23rd August, 7:45 kickoff.
With less than 5 miles separating the two sides, both sides are eagerly awaiting the tie, and have mutually agreed to move the game to Friday night with both sides having to play again over the bank holiday weekend.
Lead by former Hawks defender, Harry Shooman, the Tigers breezed past fellow SCFL Premier side Eastbourne United 6-1 to record their biggest ever win in the FA Cup.
Meanwhile, the Hawks started their season with a 3-2 victory over VCD Athletic. Match report can be found here.
